I’m on BBC News today. I started a little project last year to slowly rid myself of everything I owned. I called it Cult of Less. I indexed everything I had and then put it up for sale. It made moving to New York much easier. I also find myself less stressed.
I might not be as extreme as a few other folks out there, like David Karp, but owning less is a great thing to do. It’s easier than ever to replace these book and movie things with their digital analogs (see what I did there?). I realize the lifestyle isn’t for everyone—there’s still the physicality of a “real book” that is sometimes nice.
Hope you enjoy the piece and let me know what you think!
Immensely jealous of all that you’ve achieved (and un-chieved)
